In this case, would Thai simply make out a check to repair the damaged regional jet, do the laywers work it out, or is an insurance issue?
|Quoting MCOflyer (Reply 19):|
Expect the plane to be ferried to FRA as they are a STAR alliance airline and have good mx facilities to do such a repair.

pushback on the UAL 777 pushed the 777 so its wing impacted the
verticle stabilizer of the AS 737-900.

So I really have difficulties to understand how UAL could offer to pay only half the cost !

Something weird about the last photo is that in the backround there is an Iberia Airbus with stairs attached to it, very surprised to see it parked at a remote stand by Terminal 1/2/3 instead of over at Terminal 4.

As a pilot friend explained to me today the TG crew are at fault even if they had been given the wrong taxiway as they should be keeping their eyes out for things like this.
